Who cares anyway Jul 2017
How do you go about
telling someone that your dinner
consisted of nothing more
than a handful of sleeping pills?
Who cares anyway Aug 2016
I used to tell myself that I could put you out of my brain without a second thought, to make room for things more “important”, as though you can be compared to last week’s AP history test answers.

Now, I can’t sleep without 10 mg of Melatonin coursing through my veins, following the same path that your touch once took. I wash dishes once, twice, three times, scrubbing harder and harder every time your name passes through my head. All it takes is to hear one syllable of your name; “Did you lock the car?”, “Pay the meter fee!”, and I am gripping the nearest surface with white knuckles.

When I sit in the library, I sometimes allow myself to watch your boney hands through a crack in the office. They are long and thin, with a slight purple tint. They wring with stress that you are now so used too, I bet you don’t even notice it anymore. They move swiftly, as though they have minds of their own. Sometimes, they will hover over an object, a slight uncertainty visible to those who take time to notice. Then they are back to the wringing. How do I know they are yours? Good god, how I wish I could forget.

-I couldn’t go any longer without writing about you

Off limits to the public;
slightly different.
More prominent parts
remain fenced off.
Rusted gate,
sanctuary within a sanctuary
It will strangle everything.
An immigrant,
a dump,
a wasteland with needles.
First attempt at found poetry.

Too fall in love and not be ready,
is the easiest way to **** someone
from the inside out
        All the poems I write
just the beginning
                              and end
               of every thought
   I've ever had about you.

Loving you
Was a lot like smoking
I knew it was bad for me
But I did it anyways
You're so bad for me. And I loved you.
